The upcoming John Yancey album sees Illa J try to distance himself from his famous brother J Dilla. In a press release, Illa J said:
…for so long in my career I felt like I was tryna be me and my brother, and I’m finally at peace. I’m not J Dilla’s younger brother Illa J, I’m James’ younger brother John.
